New Air Service Begins to Dallas/Forth Worth from Santa Barbara

Non-stop flights to Dallas/Forth Worth from Santa Barbara will begin on June 2. American Airlines adds the service after it was cut in 2009.

The planes designated for the route will be the Canadair Regional Jet 900. They can carry 76 passengers. 12 seats are designated as First Class.

American operated the same route in 1983 until 1993. It brought the service back for five years in 2004.

From Dallas/Fort Worth passengers can take one stop options to Mexico, Central and South America, Europe and other U.S. cities.

Passengers hearing of the news service at the airport this morning said it would be beneficial especially those who did not want an additional stop on their flights across country that have had to go through Los Angeles with a connecting flight to Santa Barbara.

They were also encouraged about the options in addition to the American Flight through Phoenix.

“We are thrilled about this renewed service and know that passengers throughout the region will look forward to, once again, flying directly to Dallas,” said Santa Barbara Airport, Director Hazel Johns. “The Dallas connection will have an increased economic impact for our region.”

The Santa Barbara Airport currently provides non-stop service to six major cities: Seattle, Portland, San Francisco, Denver, Phoenix and Los Angeles.
